Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: April 18, 2020

We open today's edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion with a march by the Czech composer Karel Padivy, born in 1908. Since his father was both the village tailor and member of the village band, Karel learned how to play violin and wind instruments at a young age. In fact, by age 14 he was playing in a Czechoslovakian military band. Eventually, he became a member of a military band in what is now Slovakia, where he was also the bandmaster of a firefighter's band. These days, if you write music for wind bands in Slovakia, one of the biggest honors you can receive is the Karel Padivy award.
